Objectives: Program Slicing is proved in breaking down the large program into the small relevant parts that is needed as per the specified criteria. The Objective of this paper is the betterment of existing program slicing techniques. Method/Statistical Analysis: Methodology is proposed to start slicing the software from designing level and continue it with source code level. Mingling of the program slicing with UML model slicing is done by applying the program slicing technique to code related to the remaining relevant model that is extracted from the large software architecture model at design level. Flowchart is presented with the steps proposed in the methodology. Findings: Using a case study it is concluded that the complexity of the complete software cycle is reduced as compared to the complexity of program slicing if applied directly to the code. Application/Improvements: Fault localization is taken as a single application, other applications like improvement in the changeability and reusability of source codes can be added.
Keywords: Code Transformation, Dependence Graph, Fault Localization, Program Slicing, Slicing in Designing Phase, UML Model Slicing
